INDIA: On Saturday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi showed his interest in the peaceful resolution of the Ukrainian crisis and said that India would join “any peace process” to bring this unrest to a firm conclusion. Modi asked the UN Security Council to make changes and put an end to cross-border terrorism. He welcomed Olaf Scholz, with whom he discussed the issues with Ukraine, which was the highlight of the meeting.

“The COVID pandemic and the Ukraine conflict affected the entire world. Developing countries were especially negatively impacted by these. We both agree that these problems can be solved through joint efforts, and in the G-20, we are focusing on this. India has been talking about the need for dialogue and diplomacy since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis. India is willing to participate in any peace talks to resolve this crisis,” Prime Minister Modi stated.

Modi said that it was important to make important changes to the multilateral platforms because these moves would make the multilateral forums reflect “global realities.”

He also said, “This is clear from the fact that the G-4 and I are working together to try to change the UN Security Council.”

Scholz said that it was important to get some clarity from the United Nations members on where they stand with respect to the Ukrainian war, adding that he would ensure that the negotiations are complete for the EU-India Free Trade Agreement (FTA).

Marking India’s G-20 Presidency and its “enormous rise,” Scholz commented, “We have been cooperating, which has made it possible to make important decisions. I am pleased to say that India has the G-20 Presidency, a very responsible task at a very difficult time. That has to be underlined. But I am confident that India will fully comply with what needs to be done in this regard.”

The Ukraine-related resolution has been abrogated. India indicated that, despite western pressure, Delhi stands to be neutral between India and Russia.

On the issue of climate change, the two parties signed a Letter of Intent between the Department of Science and Technology and the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems for Cooperation in Green Hydrogen and Clean Energy Technologies. This sealed an agreement on the India-Germany Vision to Enhance Cooperation in Innovation and Technology.
